i have a 605 30 gig. today i turned it on and the start up archos screen went on without doing a/t for about 10 minutes then i got a message saying system failed and i could either repair or format the disk. i pushed repair and the process started all over again i tried pushing format, that did not work either. so far this has happened over 7 times. without a warranty i do not know what to do! any suggestions?
thanks,

you need to connect the player up to your computer and copy accross the firmware "BEFORE" hitting "DONE" in the recovery screen - if your drive is ok it should then install the firmware, many people fall flat at this point hitting DONE to early before the firmware is copyed.

there is no DONE button and the pc does not recognize the device. thanks anyway.
apparently the hard drive got misaligned and the device does not realize it is there!
